As we step into 2024, the spotlight has shifted from lips and nails to the dew-kissed charm of our cheekbones. This trend, gaining traction from red carpets to social media, brings forth a fresh burst of colour with a touch of radiance. Let’s decode the glazed blush look that promises to redefine your make-up routine.
What Is The Glazed Blush Aesthetic?
Picture this: a youthful, healthy flush of colour with a luminous glow stealing the show. The glazed blush trend ditches the conventional separation of blush and highlighter. Instead, opt for liquid and dewy blushes adorned with soft shimmering particles. The goal is to achieve a unified, seamless glow that emanates radiance. Cream and liquid blushes take centre stage, promising a finish that’s nothing short of dewy perfection.
Creating the Glazed Blush Look
Now, let’s get down to the fun part—creating a glazed blush look that’s Instagram-worthy. Cream blushers and liquid highlighters are the go-to duo for this beauty trend. Celebrity make-up artists swear by the buildable intensity of a good, shimmery cream blush. Whether you choose to blend with your fingers or a beauty sponge, the result is a hydrated appearance that mimics the natural flush of youth à la Hailey Bieber and Sabrina Carpenter.
Where to Wear It
Expect to see more doll-like blush placements on the apple of the cheeks for a youthful, flushed effect. Alternatively, for those aiming for a sculpted finish, placing the blush slightly above the apples of the cheeks creates a lifted, glowy effect. The choice is yours—playful flush or sophisticated sculpt.
To embrace the glazed blush trend, your make-up bag needs a revamp. The Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand in Pillow Talk Pink Pop or the combination of the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush and Positive Light Liquid Luminizer are great products to create this look.
Other noteworthy options include Diam Beauty’s Cheeky Affair Liquid Blush paired with their All That Shines Liquid Highlighter for that fresh and youthful appearance. For an added glow, consider pairing your blush with illuminators like Benefit Cosmetics High Beam Liquid Highlighter or the Chanel Lip and Cheek Balm for the ultimate glazed finish. The Nudestix Nudies Matte + Glow Core in Rose Glow is also a gorgeous two-in-one option. Typsy Beauty’s Liquid Blush Wand or the Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint are great blush products to get without breaking the bank.
2024 marks the dawn of a new era in make-up trends, and glazed blush is leading the way with its radiant, dewy fairycore vibe. Perfect to pair with the coquette and bowgate trends, right? Whether you’re opting for a playful flush or a sculpted glow, the glazed blush look invites you to explore and celebrate the beauty of a healthy, hydrated complexion.
